Planning a 10-week, 17,000-mile road trip through 40 states is a massive undertaking. This basecrawl — a quest to see one game at every Major League ballpark — happens to be framed around three weddings, one for each of our travelers.
No sooner has the game in San Diego ended when our basecrawlers begin an all-night push to Denver so Nolan isn’t late to a rehearsal dinner and a reunion with his girlfriend. Game No. 7 takes our team to Coors Field and a battle of the beers. Everyone appears to be riding a “mile high,” but stunning news is about to completely alter the nature of this baseball road trip.
